Celebrations, Cakes and Couch Crimes [Through My Lens Nr. 32]

It's the start of March and around here that means the start of birthday celebrations. They go through April and end in June, and my sisters birthday is up first. I make the cake usually, and this time it was no exception. Luckily for me I had the weekend and with it some time. As the new week starts I'm also looking forward to your posts and glimpses into your world. Thank you for always linking in and sharing.



I like baking and cooking, but layered cakes are a lot of work so I usually make them only for birthdays and special occasions. I made this really great fluffy vanilla cake with chocolate and sour cream frosting from smitten kitchen. Recipe is here. By the way, the green thing in the cake layers is confetti that has somewhat melted in the oven :)



Beni of course was of no help. After flipping the couch pillow violently, because no one payed attention to him, he went into sleeping position and only briefly looked up as I was about to take a photo of him.


Now I want to see what you have been up to. Link down below and share with the rest of us!

  1. It looksso jummy!
    The lovely pets are not a help, but sometimes counterproductive ... - Mother made cake with raspberries and cream, placed on the table and walked out.
    Later, when the guests arrived, the cream was gone and the raspberries we distributed as little red dots on the white tablecloth. Cat loves cream ...
